Game of Thrones fans have given us some pretty wild theories (opens in new tab) this season, but this one takes the cake, so please prepare to have your mind blown. According to a casual genius lurking on Reddit (opens in new tab), the Night King is immortal and there's no way for Jon Snow to kill him. In fact, the only way to get rid of him is to casually become him. 😐.

This theory, known as the Davy Jones Theory because of its similarity to Pirates of the Caribbean, is also linked to the Azor Ahai lore (opens in new tab). Reddit claims that Azor is the original Night King, took up the job in a moment of sacrifice (like Jon Snow will), and even helped build the wall. Crazy, right? Meh, not really:

Who else needs a comfort pizza to come down from this insane-if-true revelation?
